    If it doesn't affect your pics, leave it as it is.

    I have 2 tiny water droplets inside my 17-40 due to exposure to light rain and doesn't affect my pics. So therefore i'll leave it there.

    Drizzle to be exact. But 17-40 is said to be weather sealed when a filter is attached to it. Yet, it still gets in.

    so much for being weather-sealed. i'm not shooting down any brand here, i'm shooting down the company's marketing.

    Yeah i agree. Looked what happened to my 17-40 even though it's weather-sealed when coupled with a UV filter.
